The Golden State Warriors are working with the NBA on a way to complete a four-team trade involving Gary Payton II.
The Warriors want to preserve their rights to pursue recourse on how the Portland Trail Blazers shared Payton's medical information.
There is a 9:30 p.m. ET deadline on the Warriors to make a final decision on Payton's physical and the fate of the trade.
A Golden State physical revealed that Payton would be out for a significant part of the remaining season.
